Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Maurice Bishop Airport.

What to Expect

  • A tiny international airport with limited facilities and friendly staff. Everything here runs on “island time”, which means don’t expect anything to be done quickly!
  • WiFi is available. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • Although no reviewers mentioned a specific place to sleep, the airport is tiny and the benches are hard, so have a sleeping bag or travel mat handy for added comfort.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
